What is Multiple Intelligences

Examining Multiple Intelligences and Digital Technologies for Enhanced Learning Opportunities
The theory of multiple intelligences is a model of conception of the mind. It was proposed in 1983 by the US psychologist Howard Gardner who later taught at Harvard University. In this model, intelligence is not a unitary set of different specific capacities but is rather like a network of interrelated autonomous sets. Gardner proposed that for the development of life one needs more than one type of intelligence.

Multiple Intelligences Analysis and Emotional Implications in STEM Education for Students up to K-12
Esperanza Rosiña (University of Extremadura, Spain), M. Luisa Bermejo (University of Extremadura, Spain), Miriam del Barco (University of Extremadura, Spain), Florentina Cañada (University of Extremadura, Spain), and Jesus Sanchez-Martin (University of Extremadura, Spain)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-0249-5.ch013
This chapter investigates whether there is a relationship between emotional management and the prevailing intelligence profile of a sample of pupils in the last year of primary education and two years of lower secondary education with respect to their learning in STEM subjects. A questionnaire was designed to collect information on multiple intelligences and the emotional factor. The sample comprised 143 pupils from the 6th of primary education and 2nd and 4th of secondary education classes in a state school. It was found that the pupils with a predominantly logical-mathematical and/or visual-spatial intelligence also scored better on the items related to the emotional and adaptation factor in science classes.

Literacy Learning and Assessment for the Digital Age
Howard Gardner posited a theory of multiple intelligences that offered an expanded definition of what constitutes traditionally held ideas about intelligence. These categories introduced educators to a more holistic approach to understanding the styles, strengths, and capacities of their students to learn. Broader constructs about the many facets that comprise intelligence provide an environment of teachers and student the compassion and understanding to encourage them to contribute their understanding in a variety of valuable ways. Gardner proposed nine different types of intelligence: Logical Mathematical, Visual/Spatial, Musical/Rhythmic, Bodily/Kinesthetic, Naturalist, Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Existential ( Gardner, 1999 )
